What about a bright maroon? Something that pops but matches the house.

I think a brick colored or dark red would look great, plus it's a sign of good luck.

Yes that's what I was thinking! I was thinking like a darker brick red or something similar to the brick.

I love red doors. I need to paint mine as well.

This is something I found on Ask about red doors.


A red door on a house or building can have different meanings. The symbolism of a red door in colonial America was a safe haven. Travelers knew a red door on a home meant they would be welcome and find safety. On churches, red doors symbolize the protection of God. In Feng Shui a red front door means welcome. Front doors are painted red in Scotland to show the mortgage is paid off. In China a red door means welcome and is a symbolism of luck.
